Renting Houses and Apartments in Greece
Rental prices obviously vary depending upon the location for houses or buying land in Greece.A one-bedroom apartment in Athens or Piraeus for example can range between 150 euros to 600 euros per month. The southern suburbs of Athens like Glyfarda, Voula and Vouliagmen or the northern suburbs like Drosia, Kifisia, Marousi and Ekali being the most expensive. Suburbs to the west of Athens or down towards (or in) Piraeus offer much better value. Furthermore, if your only knowledge of Piraeus is the port don't let this give you the wrong impression. Further north of the port side, heading towards Athens, there are many very attractive suburbs with reasonably priced apartments to rent in areas like Keratsini ,Perama ,Korydallos ,Agia Varvara ,Aegaleo ,Kato Patisia ,Moshato ,Kalithea or Nea Smyrni
In Athens and Piraeus it will be difficult to find a house to rent. As in many European cities, apartments are the most usual form of accommodation. The houses that do exist for rent are very expensive due to their lack of supply. This, however, is not the case on the islands where a good mixture of houses, apartments and studios can be found in most locations at lower cost. For example, a 1 bed roomed house could cost as little as 150 euros per month and they are often fully furnished with fitted kitchens and nearly always a terrace or patio is included. Furthermore, an island property (especially one of the smaller islands) will be more likely to have properties to rent that also offer fabulous sea views.
